Enter the gothic world of Penny Dreadful – a 2014 hit television horror series - and explore Zavvi’s wide range of Penny Dreadful DVDs and Blu-rays, allowing you to relive this fantastical series from start to finish.

A gothic party

Bringing together a multitude of elements from a collective of classic gothic literature, Penny Dreadful establishes such influential figures of fiction as: Dorian Gray, Count Dracula, Renfield, Frankenstein, Dr Henry Jekyll and Justine.

Establishing these outlandish characters together as more realistic human interpretations, the show attempts to ground them in turn-of-the-century England.

Following the stories of Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) and Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), Penny Dreadful boasts a star cast of esteemed actors and actresses.

The series depicts a supernatural mystery that brings our leads into direct contact with classic characters from the world of gothic literature.

With such an ambitious concept, it would have been easy for Penny Dreadful to fall flat. Yet, it rises above the constraint of ambition, tentatively ascending to the status of quality supernatural drama. Combined with the expected horror associated with many of these classic figures, Penny Dreadful successfully positions itself as one of the best TV shows of its time – period.

City of Angels

Spinning out of the award-winning Penny Dreadful, discover a whole new world in Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.

Transitioning to the 20th century, City of Angels demonstrates a marked shift from the Victorian setting of the preliminary show, now taking residence in sunny Los Angeles.

Set within the Golden Age of Hollywood, this new series shifts focus from classic English literature to Mexican-American folklore, depicting the conflict between Santa Muerte and demoness Magda (played by Game of Throne’s own Natalie Dormer).

What does Penny Dreadful mean?

Derivative of the term ‘penny dreadfuls’, which referred to the popular, cheap, serialised literature produced in the 19th century, the show coined its name from this derogatory description. Focusing on weekly tales that described many supernatural events, this show adequately earns its title, pulling from various works of gothic fiction to create its unique world.
